The boutique hotel Petit Palace Ópera Garden is located in front of the Liceo theatre, in the heart of the gothic district, close to the cathedral, the Boquería market and the Port Olímpic.
"Highly recommended. Not cheap, but lovely. "
We're part way through our stay here, and I can honestly say so far I can't fault it. We've had one niggle with the shower door which was attended to immediately we mentioned it and everybody has been really pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is very good and varied. There's an outdoor terrace on the ground floor which is lovely, and a nice place to sit with a coffee or a beer. Our room is spotless, with a safe and a mini bar in it. The hotel is within 100 yards of La Rambla and within a few hundred yards of La Boqueria, the famous market. I wouldn't normally put a post on here until our stay has ended, but I'm just so impressed with the place that I don't imagine there will be anything negative to write.
Ideally placed just a stones throw from the Ramblas within a maze of interesting gothic streets filled with shops, bars and restaurants. Rooms are adequate with lovely showers but ask for one looking onto the gardens as street facing rooms can be noisy at any time of the night. All the staff except one were brilliant, especially Laura and Mark on reception who were very helpful BUT.... the barman, Edu, really should not be working with people. His attitude and manner were a disgrace and could gave spoilt the whole experience for us. However, a lovely place to stay overall.
"Great location but no service"
We stayed at the petit palace Boquria for 2 nights . The location is fantastic just off the La Rambla and opposite the famous market . We are travelling with our 2 children 15&11, we had a family room , 1 double bed and bunk beds . The room was very small for what we paid around $500 AUD per night . The bathroom was large considering the size of the bedroom . On the first day our children were stuck in the lift for 10 mins , they pressed the emergency button but did not work . A gust heard my 11 year old daughter screaming for help , she notified reception. I went running from the breakfast room to reception and could her my daughter . I managed to calm her down down outside the lift . Reception did nothing , they thought it was slightly funny . In fact I don't think they New what to do . The concierge took it upon himself to race upstairs and try to reset the lift ( caught between 2nd and third floor ) . We received no apologies or even a call from management - Nothing , to see if my children were ok. My daughter is now afraid of closed lifts . Very disappointing from the hotel . I would not recommend this hotel now . Waist of hard earned money . A call or a message from management would have been nice ,nothing when we checked out . Very disappointed customer .
"Noisy Housekeeping Staff"
The hotel is well located just off La Rambla and is nice and clean. Reception staff were very very helpful although the bar staff obviously didn't go to the same school for customer service. More so we had a very unpleasant experience with house keeping staff who did not knock when entering our room and subsequently thought it was very funny in their eyes. Had to ask a second time for them to be quiet as they were conducting a 30 minute conversation right outside our room. Is little wonder they were still cleaning rooms at 4.45 pm!
"Perfectly situated, nice garden"
Really enjoyed our stay at the Peit Palave Boqueria Garden. The hotel is so centrally located in a little sidestreet of La Rambla. Clean, nicely decorated room, comfortable bed, free wifi, bathroom with a wonderful shower. The garden is an absolute bonus! Breakfast is great with nice staff, especially Johanna. Reception desk staff also very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and definitely consider coming back.
